The Two Gay Geeks have just learned that the trailer for Ernest Cline’s book on pop culture, Ready Player One, has just dropped here at Comic-Con International in San Diego!!!
The film, which is a co-production between Warner Bros and Village Roadshow is an adaptation of the best-selling novel by Ernest Cline which is set in the year 2044, where amidst an inhospitable Earth people find escape in the ultimate virtual reality known as OASIS (for more information about the book please check out our review Ready Player One – A Geek Manual for 80’s Pop Culture). As mentioned above, Tye Sheridan has been cast in the role of Wade Watts/Parzival, Olivia Cooke as Samantha Cooke/Art3mis, Ben Mendelsohn as Nolan Sorrento, and Simon Pegg will be playing co-creator of OASIS, Ogden Morrow (in the book the character’s name is Ogden, but multiple news sites as well as iMDb are listing the character as Orgen).
Ready Player One is being produced by Spielberg via his Amblin Partners banner, along with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah.
Well, there it is! What do you think of this trailer?
